That includes anti Christian bigotry which is now rampant in parts of the secular media.
Again we're going to name names and challenge people -- -- using hateful discourse in this country.

Is a form of violence.
You want onlookers to join you in harming the person you -- -- You are inciting that feelings against another human being that's why we're on this campaign.
And we're gonna let you know exactly.
Who the offenders are in very vivid terms.
